Oedipus’ Last Stand
Oedipus was a famous Ancient Greek hero who was prophesied at birth to commit unspeakable crimes. When he found out, he employed every ounce of his power to rewrite his fate and resist the inevitable. He, much like the lone rock in my photo, was fated to give in to the relentless forces of nature, yet both of them stood strong, determined to resist until they wore themselves down to dust. The rock’s awe-inspiring determination to stand against the rushing current paints a perfect representation of resistance.
